The Ministry also announces that three people have died from the virus in the last 24 hours.

The Ministry states that in the last 24 hours 19 new cases have been admitted to intensive care due to health complications resulting from infection with the virus, bringing the total number of cases currently in intensive care to 241.
The Ministry also states that there has been a small decrease in the number of acute COVID-19 positive patients being admitted to intensive care thanks to the measures taken by the Ministry of Public Health and the concerned authorities to limit the spread of the virus, the most important of which is the early detection of the virus which can contribute significantly to reducing the severity of infection.

The Ministry states that the new cases are due to expatriate workers who were infected with the virus as a result of contact with individuals who were previously infected, in addition to recording new cases of infection among groups of workers in different regions.

The new cases have been identified through track and trace team at the Ministry of Public Health. Cases of infection have also increased significantly among citizens and residents as a result of contact with infected family members who had been infected in the workplace or through visits and family gatherings. The new confirmed cases of infection have been introduced to complete isolation in the various medical facilities in the country, where they receive the necessary healthcare according to the health status of each case.

The Ministry explains that the deaths that were recorded today were receiving medical care in intensive care, and the deceased were suffering from several chronic diseases. The three new deaths are attributed to people aged 50, 52 and 65 years old. The Ministry of Public Health offers sincere condolences and great sympathy to the families of the deceased. The Ministry affirms that efforts to tackle the virus in the State of Qatar have succeeded in flattening the curve and reducing the impact of the virus mainly through the preventive measures taken and the cooperation of all members of society, and that the number of new hospital admissions is now showing a limited decrease.

Anyone who has symptoms of COVID-19 should either quickly contact the 16000 helpline or go directly to one of the designated health centers for testing. This is important as the earlier the disease is detected the easier it will be to receive the right treatment and recover from it.
